Company Summary

The existing automated travel marketplace is only built for individuals and small groups, even though large group travel makes up 1/4 of the total travel industry, or $400B+. There's a whole separate infrastructure for large group travel, and the segment is straining under inefficient manual processes and extraneous intermediaries. There's no Expedia or Kayak for group travel . . . until now.
